MY STORY

Hi, I'm Jennifer.

I'm a portrait photographer located in the East Valley. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 33 years. At 17, he took me fllying in a small fixed wing airplane on our first date and to this day, continues to sweep me off my feet! We have three amazing kids, as well as a son-in-law and soon to be daughter-in-law! Our two grandchidren fill our hearts with pure joy and have given Facetime a whole new meaning! Our two adorably spoiled Miniature Schnauzers round out the pack!

Let me tell you a little about my story...

At the age of 7, as a result of a house fire, my family lost everything. Our albums and every picture on the wall was gone forever. Since then I have wanted to preserve a piece of every moment, every memory.

I believe God has given me the gift of photography... a call to capture the moments of life.

It's a personal goal of mine to be a lifelong learner in the art of photography. This includes an active involement in the professional photography community. I value my memebership in the Professional Photographer's Association and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. I'm honored to be published in The BetterPhoto Guide to Photographing Children and BetterPhoto Basics: The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Taking Photos Like a Pro by Jim Moitke.

I know this journey and the gift I have been entrusted with is for me to share I welcome the opportunity to capture your moments, your memories, and to enable you to fill your home with art that will tell your story.

Blessings & Joy!

FAVORITE PLACES

I have been so blessed to visit so many beautiful places. To see the fullness of God's glorious creation is such a privilage and a gift!

I'd have to say one of the most meaningful trips I have taken thus far was my first "all heli trip" in our R66 helicopter with my husband, Neil. After all of these years working in the aviation industry, we finally got to check off a huge bucket list item! Our two week iternary: Chandler > Lake Tahoe > Oregon > Washington > San Fancisco > Chandler. It was absolutely spectacluar seeing such beautiful terrain from a "bird's eye view"!
